IMPORTANT: AWAKENINGS SUPPORT... READ THIS!
=============================================
To make the mod work on awakening, you will have to edit
the Addins.xml file, located in "My Documents\Bioware\Dragon Age\Settings\Addins.xml" (do a search if you can't find it)

Open the file in notepad, and look for the line:



Now, change ExtendedModuleUID="Single Player" to ExtendedModuleUID="dao_prc_ep_1" so that the line reads:



Save the file, start your game and the pocketplane will run on your Awakenings install!
Thanks to kakos12 for posting this solution.

Innodil's Pocket Plane gives you a full blown PARTY CAMP ALTERNATIVE. The addon gives you a stone that you can use to teleport to and from your own pocket plane from anywhere in the world giving you access to lots and lots of storage, merchants, an enchanter and some special stuff. You can control all your followers and even extend the plane with containers, NPCs and merchants of your choosing.

The pocket plane features:
- All sorts of different containers to store all the loot you can’t keep in your inventory. It features armor stands, weapons stand, a crafting material rack, several chests, … A magical chest (up to 4) that you can use as storage: it uses the same interface as merchants so you can sort your loot by type.
- The Keeper: a magical creature that has an UNLIMITED supply of ALL crafting materials (potions, poisons and traps) and sells some backpacks
- The Tome of Secrets: a tome you can use to unlock ALL specializations, at no cost , can be disabled by INI setting
- An enchanter for all your enchanting needs.
- Change your party at will while in the plane. And yes, when you teleport back your party is still changed. This is also useful when you want to equip or use abilities of followers not currently in your party while in the plane.
- 3 additional merchants whose inventories can be controlled by 2DA files or you can just let them have random supplies
- Almost everything in the plane is completely customizable by editing a few 2DA files!
- Control the names and buy/sell rates of all merchants
- Optional “extension packages” that integrate the plane with other mods or add custom functionality to it.

================================================================================
IMPORTANT!

YOU WILL LOSE ITEMS AND WILL NOT GET ALL UPDATES IF YOU DO SO!!!!

IF YOU WANT TO USE V2.0? YOU MUST START A NEW GAME OR FACE THE CONSEQUENCES :-)

Configuration
-------------------------------------------------
You can configure some options for the module by editing "DragonAge.ini" in "[YOUR USER FOLDER]\My Documents\Bioware\Dragon Age\Settings\".
Note that adding these options is ONLY needed if you don't want the default behaviour (see below for explanation).
Add the following to the end of the file:

[InnodilPocketPlane]
PreventCombatTeleport=1
UpscaleMerchants=1
MerchantsInventorySize=100
EnableTomeOfSecrets=1

PreventCombatTeleport:
- Since you could use the teleport to "escape" from a hard battle, fix up in the plane and jump right back into the fray, teleporting is prevented during combat by default.
- Setting this ini setting to 0 (zero) will ALLOW you to use the teleport stone again while in combat.

UpscaleMerchants:
- By default, merchants scale their items each time you access their store. This way, their supplies will always be inline with your level.
- To disable this behaviour, set to 0.

MerchantsInventorySize:
- This is used when giving merchants random supplies. This is the max number of supplies they will get.
- You can change this number to influence the number of supplies. However, values above 150 are NOT recommended.

EnableTomeOfSecrets:
- Set this option to 0 to disable the tome of secrets. It will still be there, but no more interaction is possible.
- I added this because some users find the tome a cheat and would rather not have it their.

Customizing the plane to your needs
--------------------------------------------------

IMPORTANT: IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE LAYOUT SIGNIFICANTLY (remove and change containers) YOU MUST DO DO BEFORE STORING STUFF IN THE POCKETPLANE!
OTHERWISE YOU WILL LOSE ITEMS STORED IN THOSE CONTAINERS!

There are a lot of things you can customize to tailor the plane to your own preferences and needs.
Note that some customizations require modding skills. However there are possibilities to share you customizations too and even non-modders can do quite a bit.

For each customization option I wrote a tutorial (or will write one). Please take a look at The tutorials for a list.
